Lesley, are you looking for MARY Bazley or MARGARET between 1861 and 1871? I see Margaret and Caroline are in Sussex in the 1871 census but I can't at the moment find either of them in the 1861.
There is a Caroline Drake born Oakhampton about 1806 living in Viacarge House Widecombe in the Moor in 1861 with husband Thomas M. an attorney.
There are areas in London missing from the 1861 though, including Pimlico.
There are a number of directories online at this site
But no London ones for the 1860's that I can see.
